This week we are offering the Internet Safety course for free as part of SQA's contribution to Safer Internet Day, which takes place tomorrow.
We plan to use social media to give learners a taste of the Internet Safety course. It's completely free and there is no (formal) assessment. All you need to access the course is a smartphone (or a PC).
The week-long course will sample the contents of the Internet Safety award, which includes topics such as on-line fraud, identity theft, grooming, and protecting yourself against viruses. It's suitable for all learners, young or old. You can do as much, or little, of the course as time permits.
Signing-up for the course is easy. Simply follow us on Twitter and we will take care of the rest! If you don't already use Twitter, you can sign-up here. If you really don't want to use Twitter (and we would prefer it if you did) then you can access the course blog directly (but you will miss out on some of the course interaction).
The course runs from tomorrow (Tuesday) until Friday. Contact Caroline if you want to know more.
